There won't be an RFC for that I-D.  Instead it will hopefully be part
of rfc-4880bis (the updated OpenPGP specs which is in the works).

Given that there are no real complaints about the Ed25519 I-D I plan to
remove the extra prompt during key generation and go ahead with Ed25519.
RFC-4880bis will take too long to get published.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
